Celery Root and Potato Puree

There’s something really cool to me about going to the farmer’s market and finding new foods that the kids haven’t tried yet. I just picked up a big celery root (or celeriac, as it’s also known), which is quite unusual looking. It’s often knobby and brown with its big, green top sprouting out. The first […]

Apple Walnut Puree

At this time of year, fruit picking abounds! When the kids and I went to our local farmer’s market this past weekend, a myriad of apples in tons of varieties were abundant: Pink Ladies, Golden Delicious, Gala, Fuji and more — all sweet, crispy and delicious. Apples are one of those fruits that make the […]

Broccoli Potato Cheese

When I’m trying to come up with new baby food purees, I have several unspoken criteria that I always try and must meet: I want to make something that tastes smooth and creamy, but also provides as much visual interest and nutritional value as possible! There are certain foods, like broccoli, that meet almost all […]

Roasted Pear & Banana Puree

Pears were in season and abundance at our farmer’s market, so I thought I would try roasting them together with bananas to make baby food for Chloe. There’s nothing wrong with pureeing ripe pears and bananas together, but when you roast them, it just intensifies the flavors and texture even more. How did it come […]

Brown Rice Cereal

Like a lot of moms, I started feeding my kids brown rice cereal when they were 6 months old. I never even thought about making it homemade. The baby food companies perform some of their most impressive marketing when it comes to this tried and true first food, because while I bought it by the […]

Carrot-Ginger Soup

When my best friend and I were living together, long before I was married, this soup was in my weekly recipe rotation. Like many kids who shun their veggies, my friend, who was a longtime picky eater, was hard to cook for, but she absolutely loved this naturally sweet soup. Preparation takes minimal effort, and […]
